Last Saturday dawned gloriously for the opening of the Minnie and Lovie Ward Recreation Center.
Congratulations to the Ward family for their hard work and dreams and to the many OMI residents who struggled against extra long delays and incompetent oversight.
The center is a symbol of a community coming up. It has a great child care room, kitchen, community space bedecked with the names of community leaders, and a brand new gym. The center will certainly make the summer safer for OMI youth and provide ample space that the community has sorely lacked.
It was a great honor to witness the many happy and proud faces at the opening.
